RumorTT: Hashtag support could soon arrive on Facebook

| Social Networking News | Posted: Mar 15, 2013 6:40 am

The infamous hashtag is something that Twitter has enjoyed, but it looks like rival social networking site Facebook could integrate it, too. Twitter didn't create the hashtag, but it is used frequently on the social network site that it has become the phrase people associate with Twitter.

The news comes from The Wall Street Journal, citing "people familiar with the matter" that the hashtag would come to Facebook, but won't be introduced "imminently." What would Facebook do with the hashtag? Well, they could use it for breaking news and current affairs going on, such as during TV shows when something is said during a show, they'll have a hashtag for it to use it on Twitter. Facebook could adopt something similar, but it's unknown how their hashtag service would work right now.
